About

The G7 POD is a lightweight comfortable 1.5kg (3.3 lbs) 4-season insulated inflatable ledge that replaces the traditional 7.5kg (16.5lbs) single framed portaledge plus sleeping mat. Imagine climbing Grade VII walls lighter and faster than ever before. This ledge is so light it unlocks the impossible.  

The G7 POD is a big wall living space. The patent pending inflatable structure with integrated adjustable suspension system spreads the load to hang ridgid from any climbing anchor. 


Hang two G7 PODs in a Bunk Bed configuration. For those times you need some personal space from your partner.

 Hang two G7 PODs Side by Side to create a spacious double ledge. Sleeping head to head, this is perfect for Date Night.

The G7 POD is fast and easy to set up. It can be hung on a vertical wall, an arete, or even a round object like a tree. 

The G7 POD can be used as an improvised stretcher for support when rappelling.

The G7 POD is a four-season synthetic insulated ledge saving you the weight and cost of an additional sleeping mat. At 30" wide x 84" long it's comfortable even for giants. 

Sea To Summit’s award winning air valve can be locked to ensure no accidental opening of the valve.

The G7 POD packs so small and light you can climb with it in your pack.
The G7 POD packs so small and light you can climb with it in your pack.

The G7 POD is fitted with Accessory loops, and a Pack loop. This keeps everything you need within arms reach.

The G7 POD is stable. It has a 6 point suspension system. Adjustable loops make it easy to level wether you're on a slab or a vertical wall. Our Asymmetrical suspension system allows you to anchor the G7 POD in a corner.


If you select the rewards that include the Storm Shelter, your G7 POD will ship with a highly breathable, watertight shelter system.

This shelter deploys from a stuff sack and is easy to repack when it is time to climb again.

The Storm Shelter’s removable door allows it to fit both single and double G7 POD set ups. 

Storm Shelter Spec’s:

Material: NanoLite (Waterproof Breathable)

Weight: 0.9kg (1.9 lbs)

We are confident in our products, so we stand behind The G7 POD with this simple promise.

As a Kickstarter backer you will get the best deal. Your G7 POD ships with a Lifetime Warranty. 

That’s as simple as this: we will repair or replace your G7 POD forever. No questions asked, no fine print, no BS.

How does this work?

The G7 POD is really durable. It’s not indestructible. You can not stand on it with crampons, you can not stab it with a knife, but you can use it on a big wall as a ledge to belay from, sit on, sleep and rest. 

Regardless, if your G7 POD ever gets damaged or wears out, we have your back. As a Kickstarter backer and our first customers we make this commitment to forge a lifetime partnership with you. We ask in return that you do your best to take care of your G7 POD. This will help us succeed and sustain our business for years to come, and we promise The G7 POD is just the first of many tools we will bring forth to expand what’s possible for the most committed.

WARNING

THIS IS NOT A SAFETY DEVICE. ALWAYS REMAIN TIED INTO YOUR CLIMBING ANCHOR WITH A CERTIFIED SAFETY LEASH. DO NOT USE THE G7 POD WITHOUT EXPERT CLIMBING KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE. 


Risks and challenges

We are a team of professionals that have delivered many successful products and projects to market. This is Grade VII Climbing Equipment's first Kickstarter, but not our team's first. Over the past 6 years we’ve extensively tested, refined and perfected every aspect of the G7 POD. Our production is based in Taiwan and we’ve already invested hundreds of hours at the factory. Everything is ready for your support. Production will begin within 45 days of the close of the campaign with delivery set for November 2019. For shipping we have partnered with PPC International, who have not only fulfilled several Kickstarters of their own, but are experts in logistics and handling, shipping thousands of items a day. Risks from shipping delays, customs clearance and port issues are possible but we are familiar with all import and shipping requirements.
